Chapter 699: Morning Paper
[Insert text: A shocking arrival!!]
Marines: A... // Aokiji......!!!
Doflamingo: .................. // !!! // ...............!!
Buffalo: Young master~~~~~~~~~~!!!
Baby5: Young master!
Doflamingo: *pant*... // *pant* / *pant*...
Buffalo: ...Th...Thank goodness!! // He wasn't frozen all the way through...!!
Doflamingo: I don't feel like fighting with you... Fuffuffu!!! / But if I won't be able to silence that man... // I suppose I'll have to take a different approach!! // ...Mind if I ask you something?
Doflamingo: Who exactly... // ...are you right now?!!! / Kuzan!!!
Doflamingo: I haven't heard good things about you lately.
Kuzan: Excuse me! // Could you hurry up and treat him?
Marines: R - Right!!
Doflamingo: Fuffuffuffuffu!!! // I can tell the difference... // ...between the face of an aimless wanderer... // ...and that of a man who's made a big decision!!
Kuzan: Right from the start... // I never believed that the Marines were the be-all and end-all of everything. // There are things that I can do even without belonging to their ranks... / ...and things that become clear precisely because I am no longer one of them.
Smoker: I was...dead for sure just now.
Kuzan: Hahahah... Mmm... It seems fate had its part to play... / ...in bringing me here.
Smoker: What does bring you here?
Kuzan: ...I came to see you.
Smoker: ...How did you know where I'd be?
Smoker: I hope you're not going to tell me... / ...you have links in the underworld...
Marines: A - A former Admiral, with links in the...?!
Kuzan: If you're done treating him, make yourselves scarce!!
Kuzan: I am myself... Smoker.
Smoker: ......... // All right, then.
Kuzan: At any rate, you people should keep a close eye on Doflamingo. / He is both a Shichibukai and the current King of Dresrosa... // In a different way from the Hebihime of the Kuja, he is a special case to say the least. / You should contact Sakazuki and have the Admirals take action. // In the worst-case scenario, he could send a whole chain of gears running awry... // ...and cause the biggest incident... // ...since Sakazuki established his new Marine HQ.
Smoker: ?!! // ..................
Kuzan: Don't say I didn't warn you. // Hey! You folks!!! You'd better keep the fact that we met here... // ......... / ...ehmmm... You know... // ......Hmm... / I forgot what I was going to say. Ah well.
Marines: We won't tell anyone we met you!!!
[Box: Evening of the same day, somewhere in the ocean...]
Luffy: It's getting late. Looks like nobody showed up!!
Usopp: They're not gonna find us now, right?!! // How many thousand people has he sent after us?! No, how many tens of thousands?! // Ever since we heard about you threatening Doflamingo of all people... / ...we haven't had a moment's peace of mind, you realise that?!!
Chopper: That fellow speaks truth!!
Luffy: But Kin made us these cool helmets, so it's all good!
Brook: When faced with the impossible choice of leaving the Shichibukai or doing battle with a Yonkou... // ...the natural reaction would be to take a third option and come after us with murderous intent!! Yohohoho, I'm scared!!
Kin'emon: Accursed fiend~~~~~~~~!! / I challenge you to a duel!!!
Luffy: Ooh, are they playing samurai?
Zoro: I'm telling you, it's not that easy to explain!! Stop that!!
Nami: Could you not do that on board the ship?! It's dangerous!
Kin'emon: I was a fool to trust you! How could I forget that terrible incident that brought my nation to tears?!! / The heinous robbing of the graves of my country's heroes!! And to think, you were behind it all!!!
Zoro: I'm telling you, it wasn't me!!
Kin'emon: Do not lie to me!! That blade by your side is Shuusui, famed weapon of the great swordsman Ryuuma!!! Do you deny it?!!
Sanji: It sure is noisy in here... Who's up for an evening snack?
Luffy/Chopper: Evening snack?! What's for eating?!
Kin'emon: "Pida"?! Is that man going to serve yet another strange delicacy?! / I wonder if Momonosuke has retired to bed yet...
Nami: He's in the bath with Robin.
Robin: So you haven't been able to have a bath for days? Poor thing.
Robin: Are you feeling nice and warmed up?
Momonosuke: I am quite comfortable.
Robin: Ah, just who I was looking for! // Kin'emon-san, do you have a kimono for -
Kin'emon/Sanji/Brook: WHAT IS THAT PERVY LITTLE BRAT PLAYING AT~~~~~~~~?!!!
Brook: I don't think this is quite fair, hmm?!
Sanji: Taking full advantage of your status as a child, are you?!!
Kin'emon: That topknot of yours is coming right off!!!
Nami: You three!!! Stop ganging up and bullying the poor child!!!
Sanji: Nami-san... There are times when a man...
Momonosuke: I was so scared, milady~~~~!!
Nami: M - "Milady"?♡ Why, you little charmer~~! // Aw, isn't he just the cutest little thing~?!♡ Momo-chan, do you want to come and sleep in our room~?♡
Brook/Sanji/Kin'emon: Whaaaat?!! An invitation to the Forbidden Garden of Wonder~~~~?!! // ?!! // (The brat is a demon~~~~~~~~~~~!!!)
Usopp: (...There's still no guarantee he won't find us...!! Doflamingo!! If you're gonna show up, show up already!! / ...No, actually, don't!!)
Sanji: (That pervy brat... When I think that he's with Nami-san and Robin-chan right now... Arghhhhh!!)
Franky: *yawn*~~~~ // Nothing amiss on the horizon...
Brook: It's MOOOOOOORNIIIIIIING~~~!! Yohohohoho~~~~~!♪ Aww yeahhhhh~~~~~~~!♪ // The newspaper~~~~~ is here~~~~~~!♪ Yeah! C'mon~!♪
Law: .................. // If he's in there, all's good. If he's not...
Luffy: Donquixote Doflamingo... / ...leaves the Shichibukai!!! // The King of Dresrosa abandons his throne?!!
Usopp: He really went and did it~~~~~!!!
Brook: His...throne?!! The man was a King...?!!
Luffy: A King, huh~~~?! Like, of a country of birds~~~~?!
Franky: It can't be this easy... This is just making me more worried...
Law: Excellent. / He didn't have any other choice...!!!
Caesar: Joker......!! You would go so far for my sake?!
Luffy: ...So...why are our faces in here too?!
People: Huh? // ?!!
[Box: Shichibukai Trafalgar Law forms an unexpected alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates. // The Government's response to Law's actions is as yet unclear.]
[Box: Around the world...]
People: What's the deal with today's newspaper?!! // Doflamingo leaving the Shichibukai, Law forming an alliance with the Straw Hats... // ...And these guys as well?!! // Kidd!! Apoo!! Hawkins!!!
[Box: Meanwhile, the Kidd Pirates, Onair Pirates and Hawkins Pirates... // ...have also formed a pirate alliance.]
People: All those problem children who've been known for two years for being the "eye of the storm"... / ...have suddenly started forming alliances all at once!! What the heck is going on in the New World?!
Luffy: These guys too, huh~~~?! You think they're thinking along the same lines as us?
Law: Let them do as they please... We have a plan to advance. // Right now, we need to focus on Doflamingo...
Law: I hope you can see now just how big a deal this is, yes? All we did was kidnap Caesar here. // In response, Doflamingo has abandoned both the throne he has held for ten long years... / ...and his license to pillage and plunder freely as a Shichibukai, all in one night. // He's made his answer very clear - he's willing to go to incredible lengths to get this man back!! / If we return him, this deal is done and dusted, but...
[Box: Dresrosa... // Unsure of how to respond to their King Doflamingo's sudden abdication of the throne...]
People: Your Majesty~~~~~!! // Your Majesty~~~~~!!
[Box: ...the island's citizens were in a panic.]
DenDenMushi: *brrrrrrrrrrring!!* // *brrrrrrrrrring!!*
